to report that the president has sprung into action immediately to help us get us those things while we were in the car riding together. i appreciate that. he has worked extremely closely with me since the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation oversince the weekend. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> obama: at the top of my list i have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. i want to thank all the first responders who have been involved in this process the lines men, the firefighters, the folks who were in here shoveling out people who were supposed to get the hell out and didn't, you helped to save a lot of lives and a lot of prope

and public investment and all of us, i think that's a winning way of framing it. >> cenk: you're definitely right about that, there's no question about that. the question is the guy in the white house is not going to frame it that way. if my prediction is right and we'll go to the upper end of it and say the marge national tax rate gets moved up. is that a good deal for a bad deal? >> it's a bad deal, because remember the clinton highest marginal tax rates on dual filers 39.6% that is still historically very, very low. i mean, before 1980, the highest marge national tax rate was 71% under eisenhower, 91%. even if you consider all of the tax deductions that the wealthy took in those years. the effective tax rate on the highest income people was still about 55%. much higher than the 39% under bill clinton. did the economy suffer? no! we did very well in the 1950's and 1960's. we actually had an economy that worked for everybody. the rich did not take home 24% of total income. they took home about 9% of total income, even before taxes. what we need to do as a country is understand that we had
